Under no circumstances will HackerOne be liable in any way for any Vulnerability Report, including, but not limited to, any errors or omissions in any Vulnerability Report, or any loss or damage of any kind incurred as a result of the use of any Vulnerability Report.

Finders are not employees, contractors or agents of HackerOne, but are independent third parties who want to participate in Programs and connect with Customer through the Services. Customer agrees that any legal remedy that Customer seeks to obtain for actions or omissions of Finder or other third parties regarding Customer's Program, including Vulnerability Reports, will be limited to a claim against the particular Finder or other third parties who caused harm to Customer, and Customer agrees not to attempt to impose liability on HackerOne or seek any legal remedy from HackerOne with respect to such actions or omissions.

HackerOne is not responsible for processing any Bounty award that is not a monetary payment, or for delays in payment outside of HackerOne's reasonable control.

Customer agrees to pay HackerOne a fee equal to twenty percent (20%) of each monetary Bounty awarded to a Finder for access to and use of the HackerOne Platform
